There isn’t much information for this find. They seem quite rare as you can see by the NBM map below where sighting are recorded

These are small grey-white winged insects related to lacewings. They are often known as waxwing lacewings or dustywing lacewings. The wings have a dusty appearance caused by a white waxy substance which the insect produces itself.
